Holocaust Remembrance Day must not be forgotten

This past Thursday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. Sadly — and tragically, in my opinion — there was very little or no mention of it in the media. We all know what happens if we do not learn from history. Will that horror happen again? I know this may shock some of you but there are many who contend that the Holocaust ever happened at all.

Such thinking is a huge mistake. There are lessons, powerful lessons that must be remembered. History is a very good teacher. Ignorance is a hard one.

I will never forget my meeting with “Josef” from Poland. He survived the Holocaust but lost his entire family. As he told me his story he said such madness must never happen again.

We all agree. However, there must be education and awareness. That's where days like Holocaust Remembrance Day play a big part. We must remember... lest we forget ... and repeat.
